How to install software on an external support?
When an application is said to be portable, it can be installed on a medium other than the hard drive of your computer. So, if you want, you can change the installation path when the installer asks where it should copy the program files. This is when you can indicate the directory where you want to install your application.
Example of installation of Eval-DPS
The path indicated by default is: C: \ Program Files (x86) \ Eval-DPS but you prefer to use an external disk, click on the button on the right and [...] select your installation directory.
If, for example, you have selected D: \ My applications then you must add a slash (Alt Gr + 8) and the name of the directory, ie \ Eval-DPS which will give D: \ My applications \ Eval-DPS then click on next to complete the installation.
